Bloggers meeting number 14
I volunteered to write one of the reports for the meeting, although I arrived 1 hour late and left way before it ended and although I was unintentionally away from the scene for a while. For this reason, I’m going to describe the meeting from my narrow perspective. I think it was the 14th meeting (or the 15th? You confused me in the invitation message) I met new faces, especially “anaminbeirut” who directly introduced himself as an Iranian and that he came from a family known for the Persian carpet industry. So I knew directly that something was going on before I came. Yes, they were talking politics, which is not shocking by any means, like most of the meetings that we’ve done so far, adding to that the overheated situation that the country has been enduring. There was also another finding form this meeting. We have many Spanish speaking people in the meeting: Delirious, Jamal, Moustapha and myself. Therefore, there has been a suggestion that we start a Lebanese blog in Spanish, especially that there are many of our fellow Lebanese in Latin America and Spain and since Spanish is the second language after English (by its spread not by the number of people speaking the language) and after I watched last night a movie (In the European Film Festival) on Camarón, which was a legendary gypsy singer in Spain, a film that made me refresh my Spanish a little bit. So guys, if you’re still interested, let me know. And I’m sure that there are many other bloggers that would be interested to contribute. Anyways, that’s all from my perspective and see you in the 15th (or 16th?) meeting.
